From crystal salt saunas and Hammams inspired by traditional Turkish bathhouses to plunge pools and IceLab Cryo Therapy, the spa is focused on sensory experiences to provide the perfect escape. Here, we share spa treatments to try, amenities, insider tips, and more:
Why You’ll Love It: Talise Spa at Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort and Spa combines the rich heritage of the Emirates with the tranquility of the desert. Every treatment room offers a private terrace where guests may relax and truly take in the ambience of the destination spa. Combined with the facilities and amenities mentioned below, the spa is a wonder for the senses as it combines the traditions of hot and cold treatments with ingredients from the region.
Key Features: Crystal salt saunas, snow room, cryo therapy, hammams, as well as hot and cold plunge pools and ice bucket showers. The features of the spa revolve around hot and cold treatments as they were traditionally used in Arabic culture. Crystal salt saunas are excellent for the respiratory system, while cryo treatments are well-known in sports and fitness but have other benefits too. The treatments help with muscle toning and regeneration, as well as burning calories.
Insider’s Tip: The cryo treatment is a must-try. When combined with a hot stone massage, it guarantees to leave muscles relaxed and tension-free.
Snacks Served: Keeping in mind the goal of balancing mind and body, the spa offers a choice of green or chamomile tea combined with detox water, dried fruits, and nuts.
Unique Treatment: We recommend the following:
Al Wathba Revitalising Massage: This 60-minute full-body, deep tissue massage features ancient therapeutic techniques, deep flowing movements, acupressure point stimulation, and light stretching.
Red Carpet Facial: This unique glowing, anti-aging facial guarantees a skin transformation thanks to the precious active ingredients based on high purity, biologically active collagen. Your skin will be intensively hydrated, wrinkles will be plumped, and the entire process will slow down your skin’s aging process.
Hammamii Desert Massage: This 90-minute desert-inspired ritual starts with a traditional inhalation and deep breathing meditation for an inner reconnection. You can then select from a variety of local Hammamii nourishing oils for a healing combination of pressure, trigger point therapy, and soft and deep massage. Body and mind will be immersed in a harmonic state of full relaxation, releasing muscle tension and boosting blood flow, while aromatic oils soothe and refresh.
Splurge Treatment: We would recommend the Top to Toe Day Spa package. Guests start their day with fresh fruits, dried dates, detox tea, fresh juice, or infused water. Then, they will have all of the below treatments and have lunch at the resort. The package also includes full-day access to the pool, fitness center, and Spa Suite (including steam, sauna, Jacuzzi and snow room).
Other favorites include the Arabian Spa Garden Body Treatment (90 min), Margy’s Custom Facial treatment (75 min), Hands Beauty Treatment (45 min), and Scalp or Feet Beauty Treatment (45 min).
Featured Products: Hammamii, Margy’s, and Terres d’Afrique. Talise Spa has partnered with Hammamii, a local brand specializing in products and treatments, for hammam treatments.
